Episode 89 is now featuring The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, the last IDW comic release, by Paul Cornell and Jimmy Broxton.

Join us to see what happens when we try to throw together an episode at the last minute and all that follows! The Oncoming Storm.... This Time, we've got snow. A Lot of Snow. And zero preperation!

He then proceeds to be mercilessly berated for his thoughts! Will he convince to others, or come around to their thinking? Find out as we pull out our dictionaries and thesauruses to review ...Ish!

The Oncoming Storm Ep 86: BF # 34 - It's All Adric's Fault

The Oncoming Storm is back from Christmas Break! And boy, does it show in episode 86! Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Rachel are your hosts for the episode, as they struggle to shrug off the leftover holiday cheer and rustiness to get back into lean, mean podcasting shape! After a little bit of "What did we do over the break" talk, your hosts are proud to present their discussion of the Big Finish story Spare Parts by Marc Platt. Heralded by many as the definitive "classic" of the early Big Finish era, Spare Parts gives us a view of the origins of the Cybermen! Does it hold up to it's reputation? Do the Cybermen even need an origin story? Join us as these points and others are stumbled and mumbled over. The Oncoming Storm... This time, YOu WiLL BE LIkE US.

The Oncoming Storm Ep 85: 2013 in Review - Anniversary Highs & Lows

In the last of our episodes recorded before Christmas, The Oncoming Storm comes together again to talk about Doctor Who, and  to reminisce on the year that was 2013. Yes, episode 85 is taking the easy way out and instead of doing something they have to prepare for, everyone is just talking about what they liked and didn't like about Doctor Who in the anniversary year. And despite Josh's attempts to steer things to spinoff media, talk about the year's television episodes creeps in. In-between talk of favorite audio and book releases, there's McGann discussion, anniversary episode discussion, and yes even Moffat bashing. And this was before the Christmas Episode! Sheesh. The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got a new year! And more McGann love. Always McGann love.
